I Have Too Many Email Accounts
Granted, a lot of them flow into one account, but there are others that I rarely check and probably should more often. There was even one, a gmail account, that I completely forgot I even had! I had created it specifically for use with this freelance work site I was using at the time. That was in 2010. I haven't used it since! Didn't even know the password.
I think it's time to consolidate and dwindle down all these email addresses. It should have been a clue to me when several of my friends tend to copy three different email addresses on everything they send to me, which all go to the same account. So I get the same email three times in the same account.
Now I just have to find the time to do so. It's hard because my two main Yahoo addresses I've had since college, and it's a daunting task to say the very least to sort through all that. Not to mention the nearly dozen others! But when I find out I'm missing work or important notices because I'm not checking the right email address, it's time to change something. Hopefully sooner than later, but we'll see how that goes.
A word to the wise: just use one or two emails tops! It gets out of hand fast!
